PSG’s unbeaten run in Europe broken by Bayern as Tolisso stars

French youngster Corentin Tolisso scored twice as Bayern Munich handed Paris Saint-Germain their first defeat in the Champions League this year with a 3-1 triumph at the Allianz Arena.

PSG had won all five of their CL group fixtures and had conceded only once going into this fixture, but went down 3-1 to suffer their second straight loss in all competitions, having been upset by Strasbourg over the weekend.

PSG had beaten Bayern 3-0 earlier in this competition, a result that saw the Bavarians sack Carlo Ancelotti. His replacement Jupp Heynckes has masterminded a revival of sorts in recent weeks, with Bayern re-establishing their Bundesliga dominance.

However the 3-1 was not enough for Bayern to leapfrog the Parisians, who finished as Group winners. Bayern finished second in their group, which means they could face tougher opponents in the Round of 16
